San Lorenzo Bikinis 2017 Collections at SwimMiami - Front Row

Miami Swim Week 2016: Le Romantique

And just like that, Miami Swim Week 2016 is wrapped! This year we debuted our newest collection Le Romantique. Our ambition was to create a powerful experience, a fantasy of infinite travel with french infusion. Envision a girl with a free soul embarking on her travels through Europe and her craving for wanderlust is what drives her passion. Weren’t able to make it? No problem. Keep reading to feel like you were sitting front row at our show & sipping drinks from coconuts at our cocktail party.

We want you all to be able to experience the aloha we felt at this show. You can expect to feel the translated passion from the artisans that handmade each and every ‘kini in the collection. Le Romantique is an ode to the creative spirit. Needless to say, our SL babes absolutely rocked these looks on the runway.

San Lorenzo Bikinis 2017 Collections at SwimMiami - Runway

Everything was carefully selected starting with the french infused music by DJ Godiva that the models walked the runway to. As the show continued, pictures of places from around the world from the owner, Lisseth Figueroa, covered the walls giving the audience a taste of her thirst for wanderlust. Each look was accessorized by Child of Wild jewelry along with head wraps that match our collections prints. Red roses lined the runway causing the audience fall in love with this collection.

The night started out with a magical set up of bright lights around a pool lined with a banana leaf wall. Did someone say Instagram heaven?! We were serving guests yummy drinks in coconuts given to us by COCO & Co mixed with Vita Coco to keep our VIPs hydrated. Miami decided to cool us down with  little bit of rain before our show, but that didn’t stop us.

Meet our Mind Bali Soul Muse: Paige Watkins

Meet our current obsession and second Mind Bali Soul Muse, Paige Watkins! A down to earth babe with stunning and natural features, this 24 year old Florida native has got IT going on, all of it.

We got down and dirty with Paige at the LA Arboretum, where she became one with nature and talked to us about her love of sports and her die-hard infatuation with Mexican food.

First of all, if you weren’t modeling professionally (for the raddest companies in the game), what could we find you doing as a career?

I went to college at the University of Florida and studied journalism and public relations so probably something in that field. Honestly, I love being creative and would be happy working as a writer, whether it be magazine pieces or mystery novels.

With such a fast-growing Instagram following, how does it feel to influencer the younger generations that look up you?

It is really one of the most rewarding parts of my career. I love the opportunity to communicate and be a healthy role model for young girls – especially when social media can have such negative effects as well.

Describe your perfect summer day! Who would you be with? What would you be doing?

My perfect summer day would be a hot California one, driving down the coast, pumping my favorite jams, windows down, bikinis on, hanging with my sisters. And maybe my big fluffy pup Zeppelin too.

What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve had happen to you while on set?

Hands down my most embarrassing moment was when I was doing Mercedes Benz Swim Week a couple years back and there was a tropical storm and I had to run from one show to the other in the rain. I arrived practically half naked and soaking wet to the Wildfox show. All the press was laughing and I had to go down the runway with wet hair. Good thing it fit the theme!

IMG_0153-REDIT-2

Speaking of shoots… what type of shot excites you the most?

I really like all shoots, but my favorites always are on location for magazine layouts or campaigns with a storyline. I like when there is really great creative direction and everyone is working together to tell a story, maybe even evoke emotion.

Lastly, what is one thing you would like our readers to know?

Truly, I feel so lucky to get to work with amazing creative people and brands and have pinch me life experiences. But at the end of the day, I just try and appreciate the little things and I’m happiest just hanging with the people I love.

Take a Tour Around our Ala Moana Store

Rise and Shine! Just another day in paradise for our Oahu Brand Ambassadors Chloe and Kara. We spent the day doing a complete takeover for our Ala Moana store to see a day in the life, which let me tell you was so rad! It included everything from eating at Cafe Lani, to playing around at our store in Ala Moana, to ending the day with an afternoon surf sesh. Lets dive in and take a closer look at how exactly our babes spent the day!

First thing’s first, food! The girls started off their day by heading to the Ala Moana mall to fuel up with breakfast at our favorite cafe in the mall. From lattes to giant parfaits, the girls truly indulged! Cute outfits √ Hungry bellies √ San Lorenzo swimmies √ Mind Bali Soul nail wraps √ and they’re ready to go.

Once the girls were fueled and full, they headed to our store at the Ala Moana mall to do some much needed shopping. Before getting too deep into the shopping they decided to snap a few pics in front of the banana leaf wall! Pssssst, next time you are in the store, make sure to snap a selfie in front of the wall and tag #SLAlaMoana 😉

The girls went through the racks dressing each other in their favorite San Lorenzo ‘kinis and cute coverups. There was nothing but smiles from this duo when we followed them around the store. They were absolutely LOVING the newest Mind Bali Soul collection, which is fully stocked! We can’t think of a better way to spend the day than shopping at your favorite store with your bestie.

After twirling through the racks and playing in the San Lorenzo store, the girls headed to the beach for a sunset paddle. Chloe decided to go with our Wetsuit Monokini in Kalea (which is on sale at all locations + online) while Kara opted for the Sport Brief in Bone, so they’d be feelin’ sporty and comfortable for their surf. Ready. Set. Let’s go surfing!

Meet Our Mind Bali Soul Muse, Julia Friedman

We searched the hills of Los Angeles and Orange County to find four killer muses for our Mind Bali Soul collection, who truly embody San Lorenzo Bikinis and the collection. To kick off our Muse Series, we shot the beautiful and ever so talented Julia Friedman in four looks worthy of the pages of Sports Illustrated. Julia has been with the collection since Miami Swim Week 2015, where she first debuted her flawless runway skills in our fashion show. Get to know our muse more, as she went in-depth about modeling, bikinis and her plans for the future.

Shop the Bone Braided Thong

An LA native, this 18 year old is a self proclaimed foodie, with a love for all things sushi and pizza.

Let’s start with a classic, what got you into the modeling/ blogging industry?

I was scouted when I was younger by a family friend and slowly started looking into agencies and working for small clothing companies beginning at age 12. Blogging I recently started after graduating highschool because I wanted to do something creative during the downtime I have.

We have to ask, what’s the BEST beach you’ve every been to?

My favorite beach I have been to was in Fiji! I stayed in Nadi but traveled to small islands and even spent time on a sandbar in the middle of the ocean in between Fiji and Australia.

And of course, tell us your favorite Mind Bali Soul ‘kini.

I love the Soul Monokini!

My dreams for the future are to be able to travel somewhere epic for work and to book a movie!

Mommy and Me Tahitian Bliss

Sending lots of love and appreciation to Mother Nature this Mother’s Day for our deep blue waters, our tall mountains and everything in between! Constantly sending thanks for bearing and protecting our beautiful Earth.

Ashley_2

Shop the Sport Brief

We had one of our very own mommies, Ashley L from our corporate team shared a Q&A with us following her recent Tahitian adventure with her husband and 10 month old daughter, Liv Hi’leihali’aaloha. The family explored exotic, French Polynesian waters and sandy beaches in their matching SLB during their tropical getaway.

What are you favorite San Lorenzo styles?

It is obvious that when becoming a mommy, your body completely changes. I can still wear the SL styles that I love that continues to make me feel beautiful and confident in my own skin. I’d like to say that San Lorenzo has many “mommy-friendly” kinis in their collections, my favorites including the Sport Brief and the High Neck Interlace. They make me feel cute and I’m able to run around comfortably with my little girl in and out of the water.

How did Liv enjoy the crystal waters of Tahiti?

Liv absolutely loves the water. She has been going to the beach since the womb. Sitting with her on the shore and tide pools at home has really helped her get comfortable near the water. Now, she runs in and out and on the shoreline all by herself. She really enjoyed our canoe rides in the lagoon and floating around in her floatie while we snorkeled next to her.

How did you get your daughter to hold her breath under water?

Her grandpa once told us that blowing into her face would cause her to close her eyes and mouth. Just before putting her under water, I whispered in Liv’s ear and told her she was going to go under the water and to hold her breath when Daddy blew in her face. It worked…sort of! She cried a couple times after coming up and wiping the salt water out of her eyes but otherwise was just  amazed at what had just happened and wanted to do it over and over again. She’s a natural now! At this point, I think she would rather be in water than on land. She has always been surrounded by water, which has led to her wandering curiosity towards it.

Where can we get the Keiki San Lorenzo bikinis?

These are available online and at selected stores. I just grabbed all of my bikinis and searched through each stores inventory to find ones that matched mine. I was happy we were able to find so many cute ones I had to narrow down my selections.

Working with such a special model, we knew our shoot location had to bring the heat. We wanted to keep the killer swimwear vibes, while mixing it up and going outside our usual beach setup.  The first thing that came to mind was to rent an Airbnb. We found a beautiful home in the Hollywood Hills that brought a Mediterranean feel through the stunning rooms and structures of the home. From the stucco white walls, to the bright blue accents, to the eclectic decor and pillows, this house was everything we could have asked for in a location.

It takes a team to create this type of magic at a photoshoot. We had our a-list photographer Derren Versoza  being the lens and Leo Cabal  on video duty. We had the ultimate makeup and hair guru by our side, Suzie K., who transformed every idea we had into a reality. And of course there’s the rockstar team from San Lorenzo, making sure our vision stays true to form. We wanted an elegant, simplistic and boho vibe, ensuring that the natural beauty of our model and the swimwear didn’t get swallowed by the environment surrounding them.
